Dean Vincent Cardenas Sr., age 57, went home on January 20, 2023 after a courageous battle with cancer. Dean was born on September 18, 1965, to his loving parents Ruth and Eugene Cardenas. He grew up in his beloved city of Chula Vista, CA with his older siblings, Joann, Helen, and Eugene. It’s also here where he met lifelong friends.
